American Printhouse unveils recycle plastic bottle fabrics

Jun '16
American Printhouse, a wholesale screen printing and garment manufacturing company has announced a partnership with Thread, a company that specialises in creating eco-friendly fabric from recycled plastics.

“This is a game changer for those seeking environmentally and socially responsible alternative fabrics,” said Sam Akkad, founder of American Printhouse.

Thread's manufacturing process is closely monitored from the moment they pick up a plastic bottle to when the 'Ground to Good' fabric is shipped to manufacturers.

“Organic cotton, hemp and others are often considered for those promoting earth conscious causes. Not only do 'Ground to Good' products provide this, but they provide life changing opportunities in developing countries like Haiti,” Akkad added.

“We see many uses for this in clothing and apparel, wearable technology, specialty packaging, tarps and shelter, water conservation, etc,” concluded Akkad. (NA)
